George Soros Wants To Help The Left Recover

A Billionaire Takes Action
George Soros is one of the most prominent progressive donors today. Throughout his life he has made himself a staunch supporter of left wing politics and put a strong emphasis on the supporting open societies, free markets, and democracies around the world. Recently he has decided he wants to contribute to the campaigns of Hillary Rodham Clinton and the efforts to prevent the Brexit decision. In both cases he found himself disappointed with the results.

A Year Full Of Surprises
2016 was a year full of surprises for everyone. Early in the year the Brexit decision came around. Most had expected the Brexit vote to fail but it managed to pass with a slight margin of victory. Later as the year came to a close Hillary Clinton’s presidential bid on would end with defeat when Donald Trump ended up taking the electoral college despite a significant loss of the popular vote. Now, liberals wondering what went wrong and how to recover from the devastating losses they faced across the board in elections across America and Europe.

How To Recover From This
George Soros has previously allowed disappointing results in politics to discourage him from contributing on Snopes, but he refuses to allow that to happen in the current aftermath. He has lost money as the result of these elections, but he is determined to help the Left recover. Key to his plan to stage a comeback for the Left is to find a way to connect with the middle class voters that supported these politicians. Globalization on Politico was an important issue last year and many felt left out as developing countries and wealthy business leaders received most of the profits from globalism.

The Price At Stake
He doesn’t believe the Left can afford to simply stand by and accept the results of these elections. If progressives don’t find a way to resist and to regain some power, we may face dark times ahead of us. It may not happen rapidly but Soros believes the rights of minorities and democracy are possibly at risk. A survivor of the Holocaust himself, Soros understands what life is like under a dictatorship and how dictators begin to take away power from people. He sees striking similarities today in conservative movements and wants to do what he can in order to prevent this from happening again.

The Reason That Securus Technologies Welcomed The BBB’s Scrutiny

When Securus Technologies received their accreditation and an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau (BBB), it validated what the firm, which serves law enforcement and corrections facilities in North America, has been saying all along, they approach their business dealings with honesty, integrity and transparency.


As the BBB expects firms to be responsive to customer’s needs, Securus Technologies created a domestic call center with enough staff members to promptly serve the friends and family of inmates, many of whom are creating accounts to allow their loved ones to make telephone calls from the correctional facility or they are arranging for video visitation. In almost all cases, calls to Securus Technologies are answered within 11 seconds, and the issue is resolved during the initial phone call. This is important, especially for distraught family members who are struggling to understand how inmate communication systems work for the first time.


Chief Executive Officer Rick Smith is pleased with Securus’ BBB accreditation and he welcomed the scrutiny, as he has seen competitors make claims about their abilities that are misleading. In an industry which provides technology that law enforcement and the criminal justice system relies upon, misleading statements designed to snatch business from a superior competitor is clearly wrong.


Tammy Mazzocco Helps Clients Ride The Cleveland Housing Wave

The Cleveland housing market finished off 2016 with the highest level of sales since 2005. This is one of the findings of an annual survey of real estate sales conducted by the Ohio Association of Realtors. The survey found that overall home sales in Ohio for the year 2016 rose 7.5 percent over 2015. Northeast Ohio had even better results, with the increase being closer to 8 percent.

The biggest issue facing Ohio buyers right now is a low supply of available homes. The strong job market and exceptionally low mortgage interest rates are driving the demand for housing. But, the demand from people wanting to buy homes far exceeds the willingness of current owners to sell.

Interest rates have experienced slight increases in the past year, but that hasn’t stemmed the demand from most buyers. Overall, rates are at historic lows and buyers are anxious to take advantage of the savings.

Buyers working with experienced agents will find their house faster, and at better prices than buyers who go house shopping on their own. Tammy Mazzocco, of ReMax One in Pickerington, is one of those agents. Tammy began her real estate career over 20 years ago and has experience in finding the right home for each buyer. A recent client commended her for her patience, and for asking the right questions so she could find the right house for the client.

Shopping for the house is only part of the process. After the house is chosen, the buyer needs to complete the process of buying the house. This can be a daunting and frustrating task. Again, Tammy knows exactly how to easily get through the purchasing process. Her attention to detail and helpfulness have led to an 85% repeat business rate.

CTRMA; the traffic experts

Mike Heiligenstein of the CTRMA: The Central Texas Approach from Central Texas Mobility Authority

Traffic is one of the problems that most cities experience today. However, in Williamson County, this is going to be a thing of the past. During the Williamson County Summit, the shareholders discussed different ways that they could ensure that they enhance the traffic in the area.



In attendance were; the executive director of the Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority Mike Heiligenstein, the founder of the RideScout LLC Joseph Kosper, Uber Technologies Inc. External Affairs Director in Texas Leandre Johns and the ArgroDesign designer Jared Ficklin. They were discussing the role technology plays in the transport industry.



All these key stakeholders had meaningful contributions towards the discussion. Mike noted that the new technology like the driverless cars was an improvement and could radically transform the transport sector in the County. However, the city needed great investment to reduce the congestion on the roads. One of the ways of improving the area is to build better and smarter roads. That is the only way to cater for the ever growing population of the County.



On his part, Ficklin stated that the building and the land use codes should remain flexible. He made an observation that the city will need the code implemented especially because of the autonomous vehicles. According to him, the parking garage space should be utilized properly. All the parking garages should be maintained at five feet tall, and it should contain a few levels.



Technology has improved the transport sector with the introduction of the ride along apps like Uber. However, there is still room for improvement in Williamson. Leandre noted that the people of Williamson needed a system that was going to get them on the public transit. The company will work with the community to build systems that are going to enhance their transport.



This was the 19th annual summit, and it was held at the Sheraton Georgetown Texas Hotel and Conference Center.
